I am Rachel- wife to Brandon and "Momma" to three sweet kids, Tyson, Nora and Morgan. My husband and I met while attending Texas A&M University. I graduated with a B.S. in Community Health and have always had a passion for educating and sharing health with others, particularly moms and children. We are avid sports fans and love all things "Aggie," but follow football and baseball most. As a family, we love to be outdoors and enjoy ways to stay active together.
My journey with FIT4MOM began in December of 2015. My family had recently moved back to Texas and I was looking for some activities to do with my children. I found out about FIT4MOM Fairview's Grand Opening and decided to give the Stroller Strides class a try. I was hooked after my first class. I loved that it provided a way for me to get in shape, but it was also a fun for my children. We were laughing, singing, and playing all while I was getting a full body work-out. The example was immediately set that working-out and being healthy was fun. As I continued to attend classes, the "village" of families there quickly became our friends. Stroller Strides has been a blessing to my family in so many ways. It has provided friendships for me, my children, and given my family a renewed sense of health and wellness. Sometimes, as moms, it is difficult to put ourselves first. FIT4MOM provided me with the encouragement I needed to make taking care of myself a priority, which in turn, makes me a better mom to my children and wife to my husband. It has also given me the opportunity to do something I love- encourage others to pursue a healthy lifestyle.
I love and believe in this program so much that I became a certified Stroller Strides and Fit4Baby instructor in May of 2016. I am so excited for the opportunity to share the blessing that FIT4MOM has been to me with other moms and their families.
